The Behringer Keyboards 'n' Stuff Thread #3

Post by Eddy Deegan »

The original discussion was rebooted at 99 pages. The All New thread has reached 117 pages. From experience, ultra-long threads can cause the occasional hiccup with the forum software so here is the third continuation of the topic. Carry on as you were :)

I'm still waiting for news on the DS-80, while slowly losing an internal battle that says the Hydrasynth Deluxe might be the better option...

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

The three announced and very likely still coming (considering the announcements since) that I was interested in are still the Pro-800, the PolyEight (although probably a lot less interested at this point than I was 2~ years ago or whatever), and the Wave. If we actually see the Poly-800 in time for Christmas I'll be amazed, but maybe pre-orders will open on reputable sellers?

Also consider the little Pro-VS thing a must-buy if it actually works, and I like the silly little JP-8000 but would hope it has a good programming interface implemented in their app. They've certainly had time to do it.

There's a question, do they send SOS review units? On the rare occasion they release a particularly interesting new synth? The DS-80 is a big undertaking even if it is a clone.

The Hydra Deluxe is the perfect controller for a software emulation such as ME-80, or Arturia's CS-80 - or maybe the Novation Peak, which does some wonderful CS-ish things. The Hydra itself is damned good itself, anyway, and does a great analogue emulation, so may be all the CS fix you'd need.

Having experienced the 'interesting' aftertouch response of Behringer's Poly D (and having waited far too long for even an acknowledgement, let alone a fix for, the pitchbend bug - I ended up selling mine) I'm hoping that the keyboard on their DS-80 is a huge improvement, or I'll wait for the module!

Yes... my head saying all those things. I almost bought one a month ago, but wimped out at the last moment. Maybe I'll succumb to a deal at Synthfest!
